My friend, Grace requested me to stay at their boarding house to accompany her sister. She is actually out for this weekend for an outing. When I arrived at their house, Love2x and her friend were watching 200 Pounds of Beauty (one the best Korean Movies).
After which, she played another good movie entitled “A Moment to Remember”. I have actually watched this already and I remember I was watching it alone during wee hours. I was a bit sleepy that’s why I wasn’t able to appreciate the movie that much. Besides, this movie is just like The 50 first dates.
Anyways, last night’s movie mood was good. I appreciate the movie so much and find it so nice compared before. I was touched and moved by their love story. It was just so inspiring. How I wish I could find a guy such like him in the real world. I can’t help to admire the character. He really loves her wife inspite of the fact that she is suffering from an alzheimer’s disease. And it just made me cry…
I will now include this movie to one of my favorites. Hats off to the whole cast and to all the people behind this movie. There are numerous romantic lines in this movie. I will just have to play it again in order to have a copy of those good and romantic lines. Till next time!
Synopsis: (taken from Wikipedia)
The first segment of the film, staged in romantic comedy style, introduces the protagonists, a woman named Su Jin and a man named Chul Soo. The movie highlights their accidental meeting in a convenience store and confusion over a can of soda, followed by their subsequent courting despite the social standings that should have kept them apart.
The second segment follows the couple now settling into married life. Su-Jin learns to be a housewife as her husband cares for her. But as the segment progresses, Su-jin begins to display forgetfulness, including an incident in which a fire breaks out because of a forgotten stove. While Chul Soo caught the fire in time, the seriousness of the incident and others draw them to seek medical help.
The third segment involves the revelation of Alzheimer’s disease and the couple’s consequent response to it. Su Jin is heavily burdened by the knowledge that she will forget her husband and hides it from him at first until he seeks advice from the doctor himself. Despite the disease, they make the commitment to stay together and as the disease progresses, the trials the couple go through increase because of Su Jin’s forgetfulness.
The fourth segment reveals Su-jin in the final stages of the disease and the grief Chul Soo experiences because of it. Yet he remains beside her, despite her lost memory, hiding his eyes behind sunglasses when he visits her so she can’t see his tears.
The end of the movie finishes off with Chul Soo replaying the first time they met in the convenience store with all her friends and family in the store. In the final scene, Su-jin is riding beside her husband in the car in the sunset, and he can finally tell her, “I love you.”
Enjoy life and be in love! 10/10 for this movie!
